    here is both my dragon and my MX at full ISO, i now we never use the ISO at its max point, but in dragon i begin to see the pinkish pixelation at 4000 iso, thats not good

    DRAGON IS THE PINK ONE
    MX IS THE GRAY ONE

    Did you do a black shading calibration on your DRAGON and waited for the camera to heat up to its operating temperature? I only experienced a pink screen at high ISO once and that was prior to calibration.

    FWIW, you have the temps set very low on both cameras. A sensor temp of 65 to 70 would be more normal.

    Do you encounter vertical magenta stripes at lower ISO? If so, it might be possible that something is wrong with you camera. However, I think it's quite unlikely that both DRAGONs are affected by this error.

    Jean,
    I do not see a dragon 65 !! You need to warm up to at least 65 in Dragon adptive mode. Then wait 30 minutes and do a blackshading. Do this when the camera is hot.
    I do not understand your concern in these high iso!
    It would be more practical that you do a comparison with 2 images Mx vs Dragon same lens and same settings.
    So we can see if there is a problem.


    just a thought

    What does your test prove or have to do with any image making. I'm sorry, I do not understand your logic. You might as well throw a capped alexa, nikon d800, canon 5d or whatever other camera.

    I mean, not even an r3d or a shot of a chart or something?

    Iso so has no effect on black shading calibration.
